Yarn: HaldeCraft HandDyed Tiptree in a test skein yarn club colorway, Tatterhood Pattern: Afshari by Hunter Hammersen Started: June 2, 2014 Completed: June 20, 2014 Notes: Even though pattern writer advises modding by changing yarn and needle size, I’d committed to an -along with this yarn and this pattern before getting a copy of the book. Whoops. So I increased by 12 because there’s no way 60 stitches is going to fit my foot, even being an average small.

Yarn: HaldeCraft HandDyed Vonda in "Tangelo" Pattern: Doppelganger Socks by verybusymonkey Started: April 1, 2014 Completed: April 24, 2014 Notes: This pattern is deceptively simple!
